Dont give up, starting planets have that, those guy get banned around the level of Tatooine, that or they actually learn how to be respectfull. Also there are ppl that just create free accounts to troll. Seriously, dont give up, since Nar-Shadda onwards the community is actually kind and respectfull in overall.

I used to play CoH/V (City of Heroes/Villains) all the time loved that game! Even when it went to F2P it was nothing like the ugliness that is in this game. I don't know why this game would be this nasty, Star Wars = Good, BioWare = Good...perhaps Origin/EA haters?
At first when CoH/V went F2P, I thought that spammers and trolls would rule the game but we had the most helpful and respectful community I have been in. It was a very positive game and community.

In CoH/V If you kept your sub you had access to a server that only other Subs had access too, we really didn't need it but I am wondering if that is what is needed here? I would definitely pursue the subbing here if that was the case (and the game will still be playable in lieu of its Holy Trinity forced game play mechanic).

So very sad this community/game is allowed to be so negative/trashy.

Seems about the same as WoW.

Been playing MMOs for 13 years now. If you ask a question in general chat here's how I'm gonna respond.
1)The question is a legitimate question and you'll recieve a legitimate answer.
2)The question is asking to give away story so answer will ruin it for others in which you'll get a whisper.
3)The question defies common sense or is something you should know already (forums aren't just there for you to complain about stuff) in which I'll have fun with you a lil, but you will also get an answer shortly there-after.
4)The question is spammed or an obvious troll in which I'll just make fun of you.

Some people are rude, learn to ignore them or actually use ignore if you don't want to hear them.
I didn't throw it at you! I just threw it to you while you weren't looking.

I was in that game as well, but the sub only server was completely unnecessary. I'm not sure about other servers, but the regulars on my server didn't even bother with it.

In the end, the community is how you and we choose to play it. If someone is asking questions in chat and getting rude replies, send them a whisper and help them out, telling them to put the jerks on ignore. Better yet, be among the first to answer in general chat and set the tone for a good conversation.

First and foremost, ignore the trolls. Do not engage, whatever you do, and talk and create an environment in which they are clearly not a part of it.

For the OP, there are plenty of nice people in this game. It's no better or worse than most MMOs, and it is best to friend the nice people you teamed with (or at least seemed mildly competent in team content). There are good guides and info to be found here on the forums, though keep in mind there are a fair amount of people angsty or complaining about various changes. Also find a good guild. Ask around in your server's forums and get a feel for people. If you're older (ie, 30+ or so, I forget the requirements) you can join the Old Timer's Guild on Shadowlands server. We're all about having fun and not getting angsty.

Well I've been back a week or so now after a long break and can only say that this hasn't been my experience on the server I'm on. Lower level planets seem very chatty, but not in a bad way. Mostly quite fun conversations, I've only seen one full-on argument being conducted in General Chat and I found it more amusing than anything. Higher level planets don't seem to have any General Chat at all past "LFG", even when the planet concerned is quite full.

To me the chat really doesn't seem all that different as a F2P game than it did when it was sub only. Can't say I've noticed any real decline yet. I was on Tattooine last night and people were asking gameplay questions (about the balloons etc.) and getting straight answers from the crowd. There was quite a convivial atmosphere.

Eliticists are very quick in doing rude responses, simply because they cannot stand a Newbie asking questions that everyone could find out with some thinking and reading.

I also found out that a LOT of Newbies never knew where the Kodex actually is - they simply don't find it. The tab is very cleverly hidden, from the perspective of an Newbie.

What I miss, though, is the will to try things out, to find things out on one's own, to try things out right away.

There's been too much hinderance in that during the last decade, and it shows. People are so much used to quest markers nowadays that they would get totally lost if they played an RPG like Gothic.

"Unplayable", the verdict Ultima VII got last year by a bunch of younger players. (Was in the RPG press.)

Well. I'm generaly nice guy, but what can be done when 5 people a day ask 'what is best dps?' on fleet?
'for pvp? go mercenary, you will own it'..
or 'what crew skills for sniper?' -snping ofc.

'I have played many MMO games before, but so far, this community is by far the most
disrespectful. '
doubt it. this community is actualy very understanding. probably due to range of age and the fact it's star wars (so including people who would not MMO, but do, cause it's SW). waiting for WZ pop me and many others frequently answear questions like 'which crew skills for artifice', or 'what time dailes/weeklies reset', 'jugg or mara for dps?'.

only few stupid questions get rude responses. if some one is always evil, maybe they role play jack ***.

Not only elitists are quick with responses to people who don't lift a finger to figure something out.
When someone asks stuff like: where do I find x?
My response often is: search it on your map.

This is not a rude response, even if some see it that way.
If someone never has to find something himself, he will not be able to do it and he always has to ask such questions

(A whole other story are questions about what ac is better? they are simply not accepted by a lot of people, because there's no real answer to them)

And newbies often think: Why should I bother reading the tooltips, that pops up on my screen.

None of this justifies rudeness. If you don't like answering newbie questions in general chat, then don't: Just ignore them. Responding to every single idiotic thing that is said is not mandatory. If people asking dumb questions in the corner of your screen annoys you to the point that you have to stop what you are doing just to type insults at them, then I think you are the one with the problem.

Also, I don't really understand the taboo about asking in the first place. Finding out info by googling is perfectly acceptable, but finding out info by asking people is not for some reason? It seems a pretty arbitrary distinction to me. Aren't MMOs supposed to be a social experience? Really don't see the harm, or why it ruffles so many feathers.
